I listened at length last night and the whooshing noise disappeared after a while so I will just ignore it for now? Will have to leave it to warm up for 1/2 hour or so before listening.

I got rid of my Black Glass Round Plate 6F8G's but am trying to score another pair.

In the event you come up short on the 6F8G version in a timely manner, I'm trying to show my VT-231/6SN7GT versions the door. Priced to move!

Over the years, I'm sure you've come to terms with being an enabler. rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif I'm only learning about addiction now...

Thanks SO, you are very kind.

 

Myself like you put people first.

 

There's plenty tubes around.

Threw these TSBGRP in the bin earlier in the week as I thought they had reached the end of their life eek.gif they sounded just awful in the HP8 I had on demo, just assumed they were knackered. Got my new HP8 this morning and just to put my mind at rest I dug them out of my trash (chicken carcasses, rotting veg and various other crap). Cleaned them up and tried them and they are fine, better than fine!! Man I am so made up biggrin.gif

Are there other makes of 68FG with round plates other than Tung-Sol or are they the same with different labels (National Union Hytron etc....?

 

I've seen a few with round plates but not labelled Tung-Sol.

National Union made their own with round plates.

There are 3 types of round plates and as David mentioned NU made their own, which are also very good.

I like Ken-Rad 6f8g's followed by National Union.  They sound similar but the Ken-Rads through a larger soundstage in my Balancing Act.
I am trying a 6c8g Ken-Rad this weekend to see if the increase in gain will affect dynamics.

Thanks for your replies gents.

 

How do the National Unions compare to the Tung-Sols? Better? Worse? Different?
